Marrying one's foster sister's daughter

Q: I love a girl who is my mother's sister's daughter's daughter. We both love each other for the last 4-5 years and we want to marry each other as per Islamic law. But there is a problem that in my childhood, I was breastfed by my mother's sister. So can our nikah take place or not.

A: No, it is not permissible.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
